Hip Bracing That Can Change Your Life
The Unloader® Hip Brace
Covered by Medicare and most major insurance companies.
Rejuvinix is the first provider to offer this new and innovative hip-bracing solution. The Unloader® Hip is one of the best treatment options for those suffering from hip osteoarthritis (OA). The Unloader® Hip brace is worn discreetly underneath clothing making it perfect for everyday activities.
Patients with symptomatic OA experience a significant reduction in pain as a result of using the brace. When combined with other treatments, hip pain can sometimes be eliminated entirely.
What is Osteoarthritis (OA)?
Although OA can affect any of the joints in the body, it generally affects weight-bearing joints, such as the hip. In most cases, OA is caused by a disruption in the alignment of the joints resulting in an abnormal distribution of weight and improper joint dynamics. This wears down the joint cartilage and underlying bone, causing pain and stiffness.
Because OA tends to worsen over time, the sooner you start treatment, the better chance you have of lessening its impact on your life. By reducing stress across the joint to allow for proper healing, the Unloader® Hip can help you manage your pain and get back to the everyday activities you love.
How The Unloader® Hip Brace Works
- The Unloader® Hip brace reduces pain by optimizing load dispersion on the affected joint surface through the rotation and abduction of the femoral head (the highest part of the thigh bone).
- The adjustment occurs during the swing phase (when your foot is not in contact with the ground) and provides adapted positioning when your heel comes back into contact with the ground.
- The load is dispersed through an area of less worn cartilage, reducing the stress on the joint to allow for optimal healing.
